Publisher's Summary

Joe Cantrell, owner of the Gansett Island Ferry Company, has been in love with Janey McCarthy for as long as he can remember. At the same time, Janey has been dating or engaged to doctor-in-training David Lawrence. When things go horribly wrong between David and Janey, she calls her "fifth brother" Joe, one of the few people in her close circle who lives on the mainland. Janey decides a few days with Joe is just what she needs before she goes home to the island to face her parents and family with the news of her broken engagement.

It was bad enough for Joe loving Janey from afar, but having her in his house is pure torture. Will he take advantage of this opportunity to show her what they could have together? And what will Joe’s best friend and Janey’s protective older brother Mac have to say about it?

Love this series.

This book is a welcome addition to the Gansett Island series and Joe and Jenny every bit as engaging as characters introduced in the previous books. I particularly enjoyed the fact that while this listen focuses on Joe and Jenny it also includes the ongoing story of other characters in the series. Unfortunately the narration is just as bad as in the previous books.

Must be a Secret - Narrated in a Whisper

What disappointed you about Fool for Love?

Way too long for the story, I did not think this book would ever end,.

Has Fool for Love turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. I have not rated many books below 3 stars.

What didn’t you like about Holly Fielding’s performance?

There was not enough distinction in voice between the characters and the whispered voice was annoying.

Too much sex

Would you try another book from Marie Force and/or Holly Fielding?

I don't think I would try another book from these authors. The story was nice, although predictable, but the sex scenes were way too detailed and unnecessary.

Has Fool for Love turned you off from other books in this genre?

I like romance books but without all the detailed sex and a little bit of an unexpected story line.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fool for Love?

I would cut the detailed sex scenes.

great story but......

Great story love the series but the narration makes it impossible to listen to. Already read this a couple of years ago and decided to get it with narration. I couldn't listen to much because the main male character is read in the same voice as the main female character Who's idea was that. Too creepy for me, especially in a love scene

Horrible Narrator!

I almost had to stop listening more than once. Holly Fielding is the worst narrator and though Jo and Janie's story was sweet, getting past Fielding's breathy, awful delivery was really hard to do, which was a shame.

Good

Good story along with steamy scenes. Not too deep but kept my interest. I would recommend if you like contemporary romance.

Sweet and hot!

Another great love story! Starts out steamy and ends that way, too! Love all the characters and that they appear in multiple books in the series. Great consistency by the author. Can't wait to listen to book 3! Gave 4 stars because the narrator sometimes stumbles on her words. 5 stars for the story!
